My ideal capsule wardrobe

wardrobe staples 2
 
 
I don't know if this has something to do with the fact I am approaching my late twenties and 'attempting' to be more sophisticated, but I seem to be buying less clothes and spending slightly more on a few staple items.
 
Above are all of the things that I have or would have in my 'capsule wardrobe'.
 
Camel coat- This is something I don't have in my wardrobe but really want. Camel as a colour has been huge this A/W and I hope it continues to be throughout Spring. This Missguided one ticks all of my boxes, I loved the relaxed fit.
 
White Shirt- Timeless. Goes with anything...can be dressed up, dressed down. Perfect!
 
Black Skinny Jeans- I wore my last pair of black skinnies until they fell apart. The thing I love most about black jeans is the fact that you can throw them on with a nice tee or a shirt, a pair of boots and you look effortless.
 
Black Leather Boots- I live in boots....rain or shine. A good pair of boots will see you through any outfit and if they are leather they will last you years. These F&F ones are only £45, so you can look chic without breaking the bank.
 
Striped Jumper- For when you are in the mood to dress like a Parisian!!
 
Black Tote Bag- A good sized black bag is fail-safe. It is guaranteed to go with whatever you wear and tote bags are great for hoarders like me.
 
Turtle Neck- I cannot get enough of turtle necks this season, so much so I am dreading the arrival of warmer weather! Just like a good pair of black skinnies, throw on a turtle neck and you can look super stylish in a matter of seconds.
 
Lace crop- These are always handy to have in your wardrobe for throwing on underneath shirts and drop arm tops. They also look fab on a night out with a skirt or some high-waisted trousers.
 
Leopard Print- Because everyone has to own at least one leopard print item in their wardrobe.
 
Slouchy Tee- Perfect for lazy days and are super comfy yet cool. I have them in every colour
 
Silver Stacking Rings- If I leave the house without my rings I feel naked. I love how adding some silver jewellery can really finish off an outfit. I am after a Pandora ring for my Birthday, I especially love their birthstone rings.
